5:01am
into the mountains and we should see the rain move out by 8:00, 9:00 this morning. temperatures at reagan national, 38 degrees. 49 in columbus. see a little of that green on the map. that is is warmer air that will get in here today. we are expecting highs to jump into the upper 50s, maybe some 60s. 52347 washington. there you go, 62 in fredericksburg. lower 50s north and west. hagerstown, 53 degrees. lots of clouds later today. might be a peek of sun by 4:00, 5:00 today. we'll be in for a nice look being day and a warm day tomorrow. i'll have details on that in just a minute. >> 25 in boston. think how cold it is if people don't have power. >> i thought i was having problems because my little mini heater in the pink palace is
5:02am
not working right today. kicked it, wisdom. >> oh, my goodness. >> kicking heaters in the pink palace. >> the lanes are open coming in out of germantown. so far, so good, no accidents reported. but again, wet pavement. that means whether it's wintry mix or just plain rain, that means your commute will be delayed so plan accordingly. allow some extra time out here on the roads. you will need to be patient. it will get worse before it gets better. this is 66 eastbound coming in out of manassas. still an easy drive in spite of the wet pavement continuing from business 234 headed in towards centreville and now northbound on i-95 out of newington. volume increasing here but in the express lanes and the many line, the pace is good headed out to the capital beltway. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. e traffic. we have more now on that northeast d.c. fire we told you about at 4:30. take a look at. this these are live pictures from the scene. d.c. fire confirms to fox 5 it was an abandoned home that was

5:04am
light running. now, the city is going to ticket you, the camera will flash in a drive just crosses that right line. even in they stop, not necessarily because they blow through the red light. the cameras also will videotape drivers who making right turns on red. if they do not come a complete stop before they then make the turn. so we went and looked at the city of rockville's web site. we got some information from them and take a look at the three most ticketed intersections. you can seat big difference in citing as that this change in their policy has made. westbound goody drive at research, in 2012, there were 5087 violations in in 2011, there were only 1043. westbound goody drive at
5:05am
gaither road. pretty significant number of red light citations there. the sickettes are $75 each. last year, rockville brought in $1.3 million, more than double the money that the city brought in from red light cratations last year and in many of the years past. so we're going to continue to follow up on this all morning long. coming up a little later, we'll talk about why at least one organization says that this program and others like it and the way they are enforcing these red light violations may not be in compliance with federal standards. back to you. >> something is not right there. thank you. a news alert out of prince george's county now. police are searching for a suspect in the murder of a 71- year-old woman. geraldine mcintyre was found dead in her home on chapel oaks

5:36am
began its red light program and citing as averaged about 8500 a year up until they made this change. now, the citations have more than doubled. it is all because the city of rockville changed the camera vendors and the cameras and they also changed what rockville considers to be a red light violation. the new cameras were installed last summer. they became operational in august. now, the cameras will flash for a driver just crosses that white stop line, not just in they blow through the red light. the cameras also videotaped drivers making right turns on red which is legal. but they will get a tick fete they don't come to a complete stop before making the right turn. here is a look at the three most ticketed intersections in the city of rockville. westbound goody drive at research boulevard, 5087 violations in 2012.
